The first battery charger designed by Apple, the Apple Battery Charger sets a new industry standard for quick, wise energy usage. That's because the Apple Battery Charger has one of the lowest standby power usage values--or "vampire draw"--of any similar charger on the market. Standby power is the energy that most chargers continue to draw after their batteries are fully charged. In contrast to most chargers, the Apple Battery Charger senses when its batteries are done charging and automatically reduces the amount of power it needs. This intelligent power management system makes the charger one of the most energy-efficient rechargeable battery solutions ever.
The Apple Battery Charger offers a much smaller "vampire draw" than most other chargers.
It's a Beautiful FitThe Apple Battery Charger is as well designed on the outside as it is on the inside. The charger boasts a sleek, compact shape, so you can plug it in between tangles of desk wires or pack it neatly in your computer bag when you travel. And like Apple power adapters, the Apple Battery Charger is designed with a removable AC plug, so you can replace it with plugs that fit different outlets around the world. Ideal for energy-conscious computer users of all stripes, the Apple Battery Charger comes with a wall charger and six rechargeable AA NiMH batteries.
The charger and batteries fit seamlessly within the Apple design landscape.

I've read on Engadget that the batteries are the same, just with different labels. Apple is not in the business of designing and manufacturing AA batteries, they have someone else do it for them to their specifications. So the difference is in the charger.
The Apple charger is outwardly much nicer looking--it is an Apple product after all--and more importantly much less bulky. The Sanyo charger takes up a lot of room and will not fit nicely on a power strip. The Apple charger has the added bonus of using a standard Apple plug module, so I could attach a long cord or an international plug should I go outside the United States. It is a simple and elegant object.
As for gains in power efficiency. I do not believe the Sanyo charger is particularly inefficient. I've attached it to my Kill-A-Watt and once the battery is charged, the device shuts off its light--just like the Apple charger--and goes into a mode which uses so little energy my reader displays it as zero Watts. The Apple charger might well use less, it's just such a small amount you are unlikely to notice; it would certainly take a long time to make up the cost difference.
Be warned that because of the chemistry of NiMH batteries, these are not 1.Read more ›

Honestly, I'm finding a recommendation a little difficult to word. There is no doubt that this is a quality charger, and the batteries are excellent - if the price isn't a factor for you then you will not be disappointed! It's a handy thing to have on hand, and since I only use it for mouse batteries I always have plenty to spare. If you're not an Apple fanatic and you don't need every peripheral branded, then there are better (more capacious and cheaper) chargers out there. I'm very happy that I got this as a gift, it has worked wonderfully so far, I'm just not sure I would go out and buy this for myself again if it ever dies.
I am using Apple batteries with IMAC's mouse, KB and Trackpad, so far so good. I have to see if it really last as Apple says.
My Eneloops are more than a year old and working great, all other Rechargeable batteris (3-4 years old are garbage in comparison to these new rechargeable, I need to recycle them).
If you need it for travel Apple batteries are great, price is fair for 6 pack and tiny charger (real plus point).
I already had a bunch of rechargeable batteries which I charged using the loud clunky Duracell charger that came with the Duracell kit. The Duracell charger makes a loud fan noise while charging and the power brick is as large as the charger. My plan was to charge a bunch of batteries and have them ready to go. But for some reason unless the batteries have just been charged they always show about a 60% charge after they sit around. The way my Apple Magic Mouse goes through batteries I needed some rechargeable batteries ready to go but I didn't want the Duracell clunker sitting around my desk. So now I have a nice looking little Apple battery charger. Yeah.
